Kate Beckinsale in Beverly Hills

Posted on September 20, 2012

It’s a CALIFORNIA GURLS kinda day here at T Lo Regional Style Assessments, LLC, because we’ve heard that they’re fine, fresh and fierce.

Earlier, Camilla Belle embodied the bratty, girly, Beverly Hills type and now here’s Kate, embodying the beachy-chic Santa Monica type:

Heartloom ‘Anthea’ Dress

Givenchy ‘Pandora’ Messenger Bag

This is a fabulous look, head to toe. We especially love the gold sandals. And we appreciate swapping the bigger sash out for something a little more delicate. But we have to say it: that bag is flat-out ugly.

      Cute look. I don’t love the bag, but it doesn’t bother me, either.

         Ditto this.

        I kind of like that it doesn’t pull any attention to itself. She looks gorgeous!

      Considering she didn’t show the label, I don’t think she’s in love with the bag either.

      She looks great. Though I could have wished for her to have a bag, not so relentlessly bland.

      The bag is too big. The rest of the outfit is fantastic. Love her nail color.

    • Sobaika

      The bag isn’t rocking my world, but it seems like a good on-the-go bag and it fits her look here.

      That girl has a LOT of hair.

      This bag isn’t any uglier than any of the giant satchels everyone else is carrying in Hollywood!

      I feel like that bag is missing a strap. 

    • MilaXX

      LOVE the entire look, bag included. It looks cool and comfortable

    • NC_Meg

      Too pretty. And THIS is how you do ombre. It’s subtle and looks natural.

      I like the color of her bag more than the one shown close up.

      I don’t know why, but in the first shot, I inexplicably thought she looked like a mummy.  (Not like a British mother, but the Egyptian wrapped corpses!)

      Not loving the print; it’s a bit bland but if you’re not looking to stand out in the crowd, it’s perfectly acceptable.

      Do like the bag; curious to see how the interior is structured.

      I love it. I even love the bag just because it looks like it’s being used instead of “carried.”

      if ever an outfit screamed for a big f*in’ hat…

      I’d be interested in seeing what the straps on the dress look like.  Kate’s and the model’s hair both cover the top.  Love the dress, and definitely a good call on losing the bigger sash.

    • sashaychante

      Agree with handbag assessment.  I don’t think the bag goes with the outfit either.  Otherwise, she looks cute and very LA.

    • http://profiles.google.com/scaponigro Sarah Caponigro

      I love the dress.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Perfection.  And I covet her hair.

      I’d love the bag but in a different color.

      • nannypoo

         Mine’s purple. It’s gorgeous.

      Too much hair, but I love the look.


      Cuuute! So good a stylist had to have done it.

      This is why I was so glad when maxis came back…they’re easy, comfy femininity and style and you can find one to suit most every figure. At first I loved the bag, but I realized that’s because she’s squashing the crap out of it.

    • bellafigura1

      That bag looks very hard to get in and out of.  Not an NYC bag by any means — that’s a bag for girls with cars.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      In that first pic she looks like the lady version of Rob Lowe. As he is widely considered to be pretty, I don’t think that is an insult.

      This outfit is quite rich-bitch chic. Perfect for a day tooling around Santa Monica shops looking untouchable and wealthy. Totally agree about the hideous bag.

    • guest2visits

      I think she looks pretty great, head to toe.  I like the bag!

      It must be nice for them to kick off the heels once in a while…and release themselves from skin tight dresses…

    • Ally Huang

      Can anyone tell me where Kate’s shoes are from? Please? Pleease?

    • ccm800

      HOW many heads of hair are glued onto this chic? I mean COME ON. The extensions are out of hand. What a racket. It’s BAD ENOUGH that they have convinced such a large percentage of African American gals to sign onto all this nonsense and cost but now the Anglo girls they sadly mimic are weaving at least as much. So will black girls now double up? It’s crazy and over the top and just sad. Between hair boobs spanks and shoes American women are worse off than Geisha’s as far as ridiculous conventions of beauty.

       “But we have to say it: that bag is flat-out ugly.” THANK you!

      Nice bag to use as a carry-on.
